Change at Molson Coors
Molson Coors Ireland & UK today announced that Niall Phelan, Director of Emerging Markets and Craft Beer, is stepping down from his role at Molson Coors to pursue other interests.
He will be replaced, from within, by Martin Coyle who will assume the role of Director of Emerging Markets and Craft Beer.
Martin has been with Molson Coors since 1993 and, in that time, has occupied a wide variety of roles across the business including Carling Brand Director and more recently Customer Director on ASDA.
Molson Coors continues to be committed to Ireland and the UK and has developed a strong leadership team which includes the recent appointment of Robert Blythe as Head of Marketing – Ireland, Scotland and Craft Beer at Molson Coors (UK) Ltd and continued support from Sales Director Keith Fagan.
This team has seen Molson Coors develop into the fasting growing beer business across Ireland.
Commenting, Simon Cox, Managing Director, Molson Coors UK and Ireland said:
“The appointment of Martin Coyle as Director of Emerging Markets and Craft Beer signals our intent to maintain our growth ambitions in Ireland. Martin brings a wealth of commercial and leadership experience and will now work alongside Niall and Keith to smoothly transition into the role over the coming weeks.
“Over the last few years Niall along with Keith Fagan have established a strong presence in the Irish market which has seen us become the fastest growth beer business in the region.
“I would like to thank Niall for all his contributions and for facilitating the smooth transition to Martin Coyle, since he first announced his intentions back in June.”
Niall Phelan added:
“I have enjoyed every moment of my career with Molson Coors and greatly appreciate the manner in which the company has supported my desire to pursue other opportunities. It is a wonderful organisation and one which is set for a truly exciting future in these markets.”
